McWane Science Center
A hands-on science museum, McWane Science Center allows visitors to test physics principles, explore aquatic habitats, simulate space exploration and more. Interactive exhibits allow you to make your own animated movie, build a roller coaster or ride a bicycle along a wire 30 feet above the ground! There is also the IMAX Theater , a gift shop, and a food court that offers a variety of fast food and snack options. See website for event calendar, movie showtime, admission details and more.
We spent all day from 10am to 4:30 at the center and we never ran out of things to do. The kids loved the Imax and the exhibits are astounding. You can litterally have your hands on everything and kids love it. My 3 & 4 yr olds missed a nap and had a light lunch at the cafe' and never once had a melt down....miracle. We loved it so much we bought a membership.
Our family went this past weekend and had a blast!!!!!! Can't wait to go back! We spent 5 hours doing all the stuff! (some we did more than once). The 1st and 2nd floors were the best and if you have time go to some of the shows they only last about 5 mins. and they are really cool!!
my daughters and i have visited your facility many times in the last five or six years. they couldn't wait to get there today, (august 19, 2006). they, more than me were very disappointed. they understood that the displays must change from time to time, but the ones there today were, in their words . . . lame, lame, lame. for us to drive as far as we did, pay what we did and have to deal with the most apathetic employees ever at the center, it's gonna be a long time before we undertake this experience again.
thank you for your time.
